Hear Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s beloved Concertmaster Maria Lindsay perform Anna Pavlova’s lush Monolog – written as a tribute to Pavlova’s violinist father – alongside a dazzling performance of Australian jazz legend Tommy Tycho’s Violin Concerto, dedicated to Lindsay herself.

Experience the next generation of classical music when the winner of the 2023 Young Composer Award is unveiled, with a brand new work for the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra and Willoughby Symphony Choir.
